When you’re building a staircase or deck, it’s difficult to get a good smooth finish on edges with a belt sander. You can always use the fixed spindle sander, but that takes a bit of planning.
Or, you can grab Porter Cable’s portable oscillating spindle sander and just finish the edges right on the project. It’s also a heck of a lot easier to carry to the job site.
Called the Model 121, it features:
- a 2,400-3,600 RPM variable speed motor, which allows use of hard and soft woods as well as laminates, plastics, and marble
- adjustable edge guide for accurate pre-set removal of stock
- and a 1″ vacuum port for dust-free sanding
If you’re doing a lot of on-site finishing work, or if you’re looking for an alternative to a large, fixed oscillating spindle sander for a smaller shop, this tool’s worth a look.
Street pricing starts around $260.
